1989 Brane Cantenac

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



I found the 1989 Brane-Cantenac to be similar to their 1982, only higher in alcohol and lower in acidity, with a loosely structured yet powerful, concentrated, fruity taste. Lots of new oak has given the wine much needed form and focus. Although lacking in finesse, this wine offers a big, succulent mouthful of juicy fruit along with a blast of alcohol in the finish. Anticipated maturity: Now-2004. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 85



A big, brutish wine with lots of everything. Rich aromas of cooked strawberries, earth and tobacco. Full-bodied and chewy, providing masses of tannins, yet it's smooth with ripe fruit and lots of character on the finish. Give it time.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. – James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1999
